2022 Intention

Do your 2022 intentions and goals include making changes related to your health and well-being? VA’s Live Whole Health mobile application is a free, easy-to-use tool created for Veterans and others who are ready to take the next step in their Whole Health journey. The Live Whole Health app is available for download on iOS or Android device. The app is not meant to replace professional care for clinical or mental health conditions.

Whole Health is VA’s holistic approach to care that supports your health and well-being. Whole Health centers care around what matters to you, not what is the matter with you. With this app, you can fill out your personal health inventory, set goals, get virtual coaching, and learn more about Whole Health. Learn more in the Live Whole Health Mobile App Fact Sheet.
